Ombré (another French word which means 'to shadow') produces a more contrasting two-tone effect, usually by creating hair colour that is darker at the roots and lighter at the ends of the hair.  In contrast, balayage gives a more multi-dimensional result with hair colours hand-painted in vertical sections as if to simulate where the sun might catch the light on your hair.

There are many ways your David Youll stylist can use balayage hair colour including colour blending, root stretching, colour melt and free-hand highlights.  If you’ve seen a hair look you love, bring us in an image and we’ll adapt the look for you.

The length of your amount of time taken will depend on whether you choose a full balayage colour service throughout your hair or if you are adding a few highlights, for example around your face.  Your hair may also require some preparation to achieve the final result you are aiming for.

Book in for a complimentary colour consultation and we will assess your hair and be able to advise you on how long it will take to create the look you desire.

Yes, we do. Book your balayage colour consultation at our salon in Paignton by calling 01803 524416 and we will assess the current condition and colour of your hair and advise you on the results we can achieve.

Balayage is relatively low maintenance as your root regrowth is less noticeable than with other colour techniques.  However, we do recommend you visit your colourist every 8-12 weeks to freshen up your colour.

Pricing depends on the Stylist level you select. View our full-service menu and price list. Please note, new clients will be asked to have a consultation and a skin test is required at least 48 hours prior to hair colouring appointments.
